How do you make a docker image to deploy AI2?

Hi, I am trying to make a docker image that can deploy AI2 anywhere, I have currently tried

Dockerfile:

FROM openjdk:8

ENV HOME /home/developer

RUN ls

# Install other useful tools
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y \
ant \
curl \
git \
sudo \
unzip \
# Install dependency
	lib32z1 \
	lib32stdc++6 \
# Install phantomJS
phantomjs \
# Clean up
 && apt-get clean && apt-get purge \
# Set up some permissions. Replace 1000 with your user/groupid if it is different
 && export uid=1000 gid=1000 \
 && mkdir -p $HOME \
 && echo "developer:x:${uid}:${gid}:Developer,,,:${HOME}:/bin/bash" >> /etc/passwd \
 && echo "developer:x:${uid}:" >> /etc/group \
 && echo "developer ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL" > /etc/sudoers.d/developer \
 && chmod 0440 /etc/sudoers.d/developer \
 && chown ${uid}:${gid} -R $HOME \
# Google App engine
 && curl 'https://storage.googleapis.com/appengine-sdks/featured/appengine-java-sdk-1.9.84.zip' > /tmp/appengine.zip \
 && unzip -d $HOME /tmp/appengine.zip \
 && rm /tmp/appengine.zip \
 && ln -s $HOME/appengine-java-sdk-1.9.84 $HOME/appengine

COPY server.sh $HOME
RUN chmod +x $HOME/server.sh \
 && chown ${uid}:${gid} $HOME/server.sh

EXPOSE 8888

USER developer
WORKDIR $HOME

startServer.sh

#!/bin/bash
set -e

cd /home/developer/appinventor-sources/appinventor

ant RunLocalBuildServer > /dev/null &

/home/developer/appengine/bin/dev_appserver.sh --port=8888 --address=0.0.0.0 appengine/build/war/

Any help is appreciated :slight_smile:

There are some things you could leave out. You don't need phantomjs, for example. In reality, what you'd probably want to do is use a gcloud SDK instead since the standalone App Engine SDK is deprecated.

I also don't see where you're adding the compiled binaries to your image, so your startServer.sh script will likely fail.

Maybe this will hep you

Hi @ewpatton,
I made a GitHub action that builds the appinventor, then builds the docker image and pushes it to the docker registry. The server.sh and dockerfile below are for just the frontend and gwt parts except for the build server. To run the build server, the last line of the server.sh needs to be replaced by ant RunLocalBuildServer and the EXPOSE 8888 in dockerfile be replaced with EXPOSE 9990 and the dockerfile needs to be built again.
